If you have blocked nozzles unfortunatelly you have to replace the print head.
What about the nozzle check pattern?

Our iPF700 Printer is printing lines through color pages. Can't figure out why...


enter the menu, go to test print, perform nozzle check and see the print out, there must be 6 grids of colors. Check alla the grids if some of them are brocken then perform head cleaning B twice or more.
If the problem doesn;t go then replace the print head.

Why does my IPF700 plotter print cyan lines on the whole print?


Are you using the correct drivers? If the answer is yes you either have a bad (or dirty) printer or, a bad ink cartridge.

We have an IPF700 that suddenly started printing in streaks


go to menu,test print,nozzle check and see if the 6 grid patern is ok.
If not, perform head cleaning B twice or more.
If the result remains the same then you have to replace the print head.
But before try to upgrade the firmware to the latest version and try to raise one or two steps the print quallity (from draft(600dpi) to Standart(600dpi) ) and let us know the results.

Canon ipf700 error 03130031-2f13.


if after the code you had to shutter down, and then the plotter made a head cleaning, we fix just putting a little of oil in the band, in the section were the head print moves.

How can i clean my mfc 210c printer head maually


The majority of the printer parts like take up rollers and gears can be cleaned using Rubbing (IsopropylAlcohol or aka Surgical Spirit in the UK this will remove ost of the finger grease that can build up over time.

I wouldn't however suggest that you attempt to manually clean the print heads as they can easily be damaged and destroy the printer replacement heads can be as much as a new printer and difficult to change.

I recommend using the deep clean function found in the printer driver maintenance tab, you might have to run it 3 times at least if you don't use your printer very often.

Tip is to always leave enough ink in the cartridges to prevent the heads from drying out, this is why most manufactures tell you to replace ink when there is about 5% left in them to prevent this happening

Canon iPF700 printer used only occasionally - print head dried up


I recommend shutting it off when you dont use it.

Also if you use it on a regular day like say Wed, then print just a bit with it during the week on say Monday or Friday (or both)to keep it from drying up.

I hope this helps!!!

Why does the plotter use color even if we do not plot in color?


If you print in some CAD programm try the following....
Paper:Plain
Print Target:Line Drawing
Color Mode:Color CAD when the CTB is color and Monochrome when the CTB is monochrome
Resolution:Draft 600
For your situation use CTB monochrome and ColorMode Monochrome.
The print head prints max resolution 2400X1200

We have a Canon iPF700 plotter. Keeps flashing message about print heads needing cleaning which is not resolved by pressing cleaning button. Probably needs a service. Number of good engineer in our area...


First print a nozzlle check pattern. Check all colors. If the problem is in any other color than cyan then you can fix this issue. If not you'll have to replace the head with a new one.
Try to update the firmware also to version 1.32 (for iPF700) and 1.35 (for iPF710) and check the result.

Loading cut sheets


Try to check the paper media set on the plotter (roll/plain paper). It usually happens if paper media is not the same with the plotter setting. To change it, unload the paper, press the media button on the printer to the right media and load the paper again. It should work now.
